Bike Registration Program

 Every year the Apple Valley Police Department recovers hundreds of lost or stolen bikes.  For the most part the bikes go unclaimed due to the fact that owners don’t have identification information for their bike.  The Police Department offers a program to help match up recovered bikes with their original owners.  The program consists of residents registering their bikes with the Apple Valley Police Department.  Each bike is then assigned an identification number and its owner supplied with a tamper-proof sticker to affix to the frame of the bike.  The data is then entered on the police department’s bike registration list which is available for officer’s use.  When a bike is recovered, the officer will check it for the identification sticker and search the database to find the owner.  

We currently have over 1000 bikes registered in the program.  To register your family’s bikes, please fill out the online bike registration form (one per bike please).  A follow up letter and your registration sticker(s) will be mailed to you.  For more information, contact the Apple Valley Police Department at 952-953-2700.
